Musician, Eazzy is certainly not taking it easy on Moesha Boduong for suggesting that Ghanaian women date married men for their subsistence.
The actress said on CNN that her motivation for dating a married man, just like other women in Ghana, is because the economy has worsened.
“In Ghana our economy is such a way that you need someone to take care of you. You can’t make enough money as a woman here. Because even when you want to get an apartment, in Ghana they take two years’ advance and I just started working where will get money to pay?,” she said.
The host, Christiane Amanpour who looked shocked by Moesha’s response asked: “are you basically telling me that you are having sex with this guy to pay your rent?”
“Because he can afford to take care of you. He takes care of me, my financials, my apartment, my car, my rent, everything,” Moesha replied.
On what the man expects in return, Moesha said, “He expects me to be loyal and just to date him only and give him sex when he wants .You can’t say no. You have to give him what he wants otherwise he is going to think you are cheating on him.”
Moesha’s statement has stoked controversy on social media and other entertainment talk shows, abrantepa.com has observed.
Joining the chorus of backlashes to Moesha, Eazzy said the comments were insulting.
She posted on Facebook:
“What the hell did I just watch! I’m burying my face in shame. No we don’t have an economy that makes it okay to sleep with men because they will pay your rent n take care of your financial needs! We have an economy where our mothers worked extremely hard to train us with good morals to work hard towards a decent future, to support our men and take care of our families and children. Just like they did and hopefully better. Many mothers and single mothers did this with pride! Without thinking the only option is sleeping with married man for money. Such an insult to all hardworking girls and independent women. Moesha, you sit with #ChristianeAmanpour and talk like this? Knowing your message is to the going to the world? Say it’s a personal choice! You blame on Ghana Economy? You Sell Ghanaian women this shallow and materialistic? Smh .Do not sell your country short!”
